This is a small flash application to transform text written with the Latin alphabet to Futhark Runes.

There were different Rune alphabets at different times and a lot of variations on the individual letters.

In this application I use the old Futhark (den urnordiska Futharken).

I've added an y-rune which doesn't exist in the old Futhark.
I use the -rune for . "th" will be converted to the -rune and "ng" the ng-rune.

For "c" I use the s-rune. If the sound value of "c" is "k", use the Latin letter k instead of c.

If the last letter in a word is "r" or "z" a special R-rune is used.

The use 'ng' depends on which Futhark you use and what the native language of the user is, for example yes in Scandinavian lang



uages 'ng' gives the ang sound but if it is the eldar Futhark and as used by the Anglo Saxon speakers (English) 'ng' gives the ing sound.

I've always used 'ng' for the sound ing. Is that correct?

I’m just a happy amateur as far as runes goes (and on a lot of other subjects as well). I think I saw a rune chart by you recently and you might well know more on the subject than I do.

Anyway, according to Lars Magnar Enoksson in the book ”Runor Historia Tydning Tolkning” (which is the handbook I mainly am leaning on) the sound value of the ng-Rune is the “äng”-sound.

I don’t see how we really can know one way or another. :D

Thank you for the :+fav:

No problem. What program did you use to make it?

Selteco Flash Designer 4.
It's a bit old and probably very limited compared to the Adobe programs.
